The MechKit was an instant hit with Dr. Spong’s students in Illinois, teaching them control concepts faster and more profoundly. And as Dr. Spong envisioned, it helps other engineering students too. In just five years, Quanser has sold scores of MechKit units to universities all around the world. These include institutions in Germany, Kosovo, Turkey, India, Pakistan, China, Japan, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico, USA and Canada.
Such a variety of experiments in a single package encourages everything from experimentation and learning at the undergraduate level to advanced and groundbreaking post-graduate research.
And what of affordability?
The MechKit helps maximize the universities’ budgets because it is constantly in use. As control is taught in various engineering departments, the MechKit is an ideal candidate for the multi-departmental control labs, utilized by mechanical, electrical or process control engineering students. Given that round-the-clock attention from students, the team at Quanser made sure that the MechKit is robust to withstand the enthusiasm of motivated undergrads.
